Organized Community CPR Training

The original goal was for Spenser and his helpers to teach at least 250 people hands-only CPR with assistance from American Legion Ambulance, the local EMS provider. After three months and numerous events, including the troop and their families, several local civic groups, 101 people at a sidewalk CPR station during a two-day festival and the entire student body of Jackson Jr. High School, over 500 people in Amador County were provided training in hands-only CPR.

Over $3,000 was raised to purchase 50 CPR mannequins and five AED trainers to provide the training, all of which were donated to the school district so the training can continue annually.
